–Kristen Stewart and her Charlie’s Angels costars were the latest celebs to chow down on spicy wings on Hot Wings.
-Speaking of KStew, she’s surprisingly getting good reviews for her comedic timing in Charlie’s Angels. I did not see that coming — but I love it!
-Also, Kristen and Shia LaBeouf were the latest duo to do Variety’s Actors on Actors segment, and this one might be my fave yet. It got really intense really fast, with her talking about a bad experience with a director (“One dude made me cry on set one day, on the first day of a movie, but that was the last second that I cared about him anymore. I was like, ‘I’m alone & you’re terrible.’ He made a bad movie”) and him talking about his somewhat unhealthy love of acting (“The most intimate moments of my whole life happened on set. I don’t know if there’s anything more intimate than creating something with somebody. I think I’m deeply dissatisfied in life”).
–Saoirse Ronan looks AMAZING in the new issue of Dazed.
-Whoa, it sounds like this week’s Survivor was a total shitshow. Some contestants turned sexual misconduct into game play and producers apparently let it happen, while the woman who originally complained was forced to sit silently through tribal council while the accused got to angrily defend himself. Gross.
–Gillian Anderson is getting raves as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown. Between her and Olivia Colman, I’m gonna have to start watching this show boring ass show again, aren’t I?
-NBC has renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I don’t go here, but good for them!
-At this point, I’m wondering if Scarlet Johansson should just bow out of all press tours. She’s not good at it.
-Also continuing to be problematic: Gina Rodriguez.
–Jason Momoa being interviewed by Kelly Clarkson’s kids is all kinds of swoon-worthy.
–Julia Wolov is pushing back against a report about Louis CK, confirming that she did NOT consent to him jerking off in front of her to completion.
-I don’t watch horror movies cause they give me the scares, but I love the creator of Black Christmas’ reasoning for making it PG-13 instead of R. “We wrote it with an R in mind. When they did the test screenings, was clear that this movie needed to be available to a younger female audience because the subject matter is timely. Also I want to indoctrinate girls into horror.”
-How did I not know that Vin Diesel taught Judi Dench how to play Dungeons & Dragons and she went on to become DM for her grandchildren?!
-I can’t get enough of these stories about how Mary Steenburgen went under the knife for routine arm surgery — and woke up with incredible musical talent.
-Look, this recent college graduate had a bad take on Sarah Dessen’s YA novels, but there’s something really terrible about watching New York Times bestselling authors like Jennifer Weiner and Jodi Picoult using there hugely followed Twitter accounts to call her out. This is punching down in a really unfortunate way.
–Ben Affleck struggles with addiction in the first trailer for his basketball drama The Way Back.
